Much has changed in the world in the past two years. The shift from working in an office to working at home has made us look at clothes in a different way. When you work at home, comfort takes priority. This was also evident at Yeezy.
One of the most popular models of the brand is not a sneaker, but a slipper. The Yeezy slides have already seen quite a few colorways. We've put together everything you need to know about the slipper and you can also score a pair for summer if you want. But let's start at the beginning.
It was in 2018 that Kanye West unveiled the first edition of the 'Yeezy slipper'. This happened while Kanye was wearing the slides to a wedding. Pictures of this went viral as it looked like the slippers were way too small and badly fitted. Ye responded to the criticism by saying that this was the 'Japanese way' of wearing the slippers and that your foot should hang over the back of the slipper by one to two centimetres.
The Yeezy 'Graphite' slipper was part of Yeezy Season 6. The first model was not yet in collaboration with adidas. This only happened a year later with the release of the adidas x Yeezy slide.

In 2019, a year after the release of the Yeezy 'Slipper', adidas and Yeezy joined forces for the release of the 'Yeezy slide'. The first collection consisted of three pairs coloured 'Desert Sand', 'Bone' and 'Resin'. The model consists of a thick 'EVA Foam' material, which makes the slide durable and lightweight. The Yeezy slides take on a minimal look as the design is one piece.
Since the first collection, seven more colorways of the model have been released. Although the flip-flops sell out in no time, new colorways are released regularly and old releases are restocked. We have some tips on how to prepare for the next drop.
